Re: hyphenated word grammar question
I'm not going to trade in my car. Its trade-in value is negligible. I've had other trade-ins that were worth a fair amount though.
Trade in your pencil stub for a new pencil or go without.
I cannot find any examples with In capitalized, though, unless you are using upstyle headings.

Through out the interface that I am working on the word trade-in is spelled 8 different ways:
1. trade in
4. Trade in
6. Trade In
I'm am thinking that unless it is part of a registered trademark, the three correct spellings are trade-in, Trade-in, and trade-ins. Does anyone have any information to the contrary?
